It was $9 to add 1/2 a piece of chicken breast (which was unseasoned and bland) to a "tiny" underdressed beet salad (total overall cost $22). Absurd.

Lunch menu is a bit boring. Of the 6 entrees, all were fried or heavy sandwiches. No vegetarian or even slightly healthy entree salad options if that's your thing.

We will stick to dinners here, since that seems to be their strong suit.

We were seated next to the kitchen and asked to move several times. Waiters were hitting my husband coming out of the kitchen. This experience ruined Fathers Day Dinner. Managers said to contact them next time we are in town. How about inviting us back tomorrow when we are actually going to be here? This was a special occasion and had a party of 6ppl. The food was exceptional, service and ambience was disappointing. There could have been much better recovery in this situation.

We always enjoy Aurum but the true best spot is outside by the river. The live music is great. The overall vibe is wonderful! Great staff!

As always Aurum is great. Terrific evening on the patio and when it got a little chilly the server brought over the heaters. One of our favorite restaurants in Steamboat Springs.

I hate giving average reviews. As a cafe owner though, I would want to know places to improve on. The space, environment, and view is excellent....great building, nice vibe!

The service was average, which is not good for a over $100 restaurant. We were left for extended times, but covered by other wait staff.

Food was underwhelming. Very well presented! Beautiful plates. My wife's fish was rubbery and not flakey. She didn't eat half her meal. We hit a night where entrees were 50% off or we would have sent it back.

This place has great potential, but not hitting all cylinders where it counts...the food and service.

One of the best restaurants in Steamboat. The restaurant has an outdoor deck on the river and is THE place to go for happy hour in the summer! Aurum is fine dining, yet also has a casual feel.

We went for Happy Hour and dinner. The bar and outdoor patio are wonderful. Beautiful streamside scenery. And the food was fabulous!! The dining room is elegant with white tablecloths and cloth napkins. If we're ever in Steamboat Springs again this will be our go-to restaurant. We would recommend this place to everyone.

Our 2nd trip to Aurum in 1 week. This was due to the fact that the food was amazing our first time. The Parmesan fries are exceptional. The 1/2 chicken with polenta, beet salad, strawberry salad were all excellent. We had the added benefit of watching someone kayak down the Yampa River followed by rain, sleet, snow and GIANT snowflakes all during our 90 minute dinner. A lovely experience and would go again in a heartbeat.

Amazing experience. Wait staff attentive and professional. Meal was outstanding. From NYC so didnt have high expectations, but this place was phenomenal. Kids portions were VERY generous. Outstanding wine selection. Husband and son devoured the tomahawk steak and farm to table roasted veggies. Dinosaur Kale salad delicious as was Bass entree. Scrumptious desserts. A+++. Would not miss a chance to dine here.

We enjoyed our dinner very much. A beautiful space with excellent service. The seared cauliflower appetizer was amazing! The elk shoulder (they were out of the filet) was not perfect, as the boneskin was left on, and their steak knives were not serrated! Makes it hard to carve your own meat without a carving knife. Still, I highly recommend for a beautiful romantic meal in a wonderful setting.

Service was slow. We arrived for our reservation about 30 minutes early. Even though there were empty tables we did get seated until our reservation time. Waitress was very slow and inattentive. She only had 3 tables but appeared to be in the weeds the entire time. It's was incredibly noisey. Could barely hear the conversation at the table. On the high side, the entrees were very tasty. Entertainment was also very good. Watch out for the uncharge for ice. $2.50 for a large rock ice cube as opposed to the "bar ice". Over all, with the number resturants in the area, I doubt we will go back

perfect Steamboat family meal. The 'cauliflower' and 'duck wing' appetizers were a hit. I ordered the rainbow trout for my main course and really liked the meal. Our family was very pleased with this restaurant and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good experience in Steamboat Springs, CO!

This place was highly recommended to us and the food and ambiance was great but the service was lacking to say the least and that distracted from the overall experience. I would probably go back but for happy hour and sit in the bar.

Nice setting with the Yampa river drifting by and beautiful views (including of Howelson Hill ski jumps). Understated and lovely decor accented delicious and beautifully presented food. Crispy brussel sprouts in balsamic and curried cauliflower were great starters. Group ate a range of food, from beet salad (which got raves) and crab cakes, burger (good but not remarkable), elk (outstanding), and duck (delicious and cooked perfectly). The dessert biscotti with vanilla and chocolate dipping sauces got the thumbs up from a chocolate and dessert connoisseur. Lovely evening with the best dinner we had in Steamboat.
